As someone who owns an X32 and also mixes regularly on the SL boards, I can tell you that these videos are deceptive.  The tech in the videos is clearly not very familiar with the X32, and in the series, he often uses the 'long way around' to make it seem worse when demonstrating on the X32.  Not cool.

Presonus's lack of flying faders did it for me... when you're mixing remote and going back and forth between a ipad and the console, not having flying faders makes life REALLY bad, really quick.

Produced by someone with a dog in the fight... so I hope you don't expect us to view this as objective.

As much as I didn't like the StudioLive and as much as I still have problems with Behringer's abuse of intellectual property and turning out some really shitty gear (and some okay gear, too), Presonus got their ass handed to them with the X32.  There is an order of magnitude difference between them and no amount of spin in a youtube video will change that.

I just ran across the videos and wanted to share them with people that use this equipment. Nothing more nothing less.

I seriously doubt anybody forgets to hit "select" that many times, especially one that works for a larger company.

Funny to watch though.

Agreed. With all the time the X32 was "coming soon" I'd imagined they'd be trying to put something out to shame it. With better brand reputation, the right product should have crushed the X32. I assume they've got something coming, but its a bit late.

I agree.

Presonus has pretty much done nothing with their formula since its introduction.  They have made different versions (one smaller, one larger), but the devices all share the same architecture.  No improvements to the architecture.

You can only sit on your laurels for so long before another company comes along and eats your lunch ;)

Haha not to mention that you have to hit select for every other channel control except gain on the Presonus! But when it comes to gain... select blows this guys mind.
